I'm back from japan...

and I'll be going back to japan
at the end of july for our first n9in inch nails show,
which will be japan's largest festival, the fuji fest.
for what, 150,000 people?
first show.
no worries.

I want to thank everyone who made it
to our crimson projekct shows.
you made them very special.
all 3 tokyo shows were sold out!
we ate again at the restaurant where kill bill's
gigantic fight scene was filmed,*
rode the bullet train to and from osaka,
visited the amazing department store called tokyo hands,
spent our night off enjoying my favorite band,
the parrots at the abbey road club in roppongi,
and played 4 terrific show to a grateful audience.
not bad.

now I'm back to my daily regimen of learning/absorbing
3.5 hours of new music, auditioning tons of new gear,
and mixing parts of my new solo project.
I'll sleep when I'm dead.

*actually the kill bill scene was started there,
before mr. tarantino decided to build a set instead
which looked just like the restaurant.
or so the story goes.

New! Improved! Thinner! Bigger! Better! Fresher Than Ever!!!!

3 cheers for our favorite webhamster Rob Murphree!
year after year he does a magnificent job
keeping us informed and entertained.
I like what you've done this time around, rob.
thank you so much.

over the next few weeks the site will be tweaked
even more, for example this weekend we loaded
a pile of my paintings and photos into the media art section.
with more photos, videos, and cheap talk to come.

now the cat with the nine inch nails is out of the bag
I promise to endeavor to keep you interested.
this world tour is not something you should miss,
so I'll do my best to update, download, comment,
compose, document, photograph, and blogblogblog.
I want you to feel a part of this experience.

of course the real touring doesn't start until august
but there are plenty of things to talk about in the meantime.

for example, today is martha's birthday.
happy birthday sweetheart!
